Mitsubishi Recalls Nearly 4,000 Outland Electric Hybrid SUVs
Mitsubishi Motors Corp. recalled almost 4,000 of its Outlander plug-in hybrid sport-utility vehicles in Japan because of a possible defect with the auto’s motor controls computer program.
The automaker called back 3,839 of the SUVs because the vehicle’s computer control system may not function properly, Namie Koketsu, a spokeswoman for Tokyo-based Mitsubishi, said by telephone today. No injuries or accidents have been reported, she said.
Today’s recall adds to the hybrid’s woes after Mitsubishi in March reported flaws in lithium-ion batteries used in the model. The company said it is investigating and hasn’t announced a recall over battery malfunctions.
